News

Detectives are warning residents of a series of thefts in Huddersfield in which cars have been stolen from petrol stations whilst the victims have been paying for fuel.

Over the past month, officers have seen a sharp increase in these types of offences, in particular when victims have left keys in the ignition whilst going to pay for petrol and thieves have got in their car and driven it away.

Det Con Scott Hartley, at Kirklees CID, said: “We are investigating eight similar offences at this time but believe there may be other victims who have not yet come forward.

“I would like to urge motorists to be vigilant whilst going to fill up at petrol stations to ensure that you take the keys out of the ignition and lock the car whilst paying.

“Anyone who has any information about these incidents is asked to contact myself at Kirklees CID via 101.”

Incidents can also be reported online via the following link:http://www.westyorkshire.police.uk/reportcrime. Crimes in progress should always be reported via 999.
